It's Just a Game
(By John Farrell
Illustrated by John Emil Cymerman)


A soccer team is having lots of fun before the game. But once the game begins, the fun is over. The coach of the opposing team yells and calls people names. But it's his team that wins the game. As the children enjoy their post game ice cream, a grown-up blames one of the players for perceived faults in how the game was played. Has everyone forgotten it's just a game? Sports should be fun, especially when you're young. John Farrell reminds everyone of this in his first picture book.
